Young Musicians' Camp

During the Summer of 2023, YMC will not occur due to a campus-wide construction project.

Young Musicians’ Camp – June 19 – 24, 2022

The University of Montevallo Department of Music welcomes middle and high school-aged choir, band, orchestra, piano, guitar students, and aspiring music technologists and composers to the 17th annual Young Musicians’ Camp, Sunday, June 19 through Friday, June 24, 2022.

This one week, residential experience provides superior instruction combined with the fun and friendship of a great summer camp. A variety of ensemble and master-class experiences are conducted by our internationally recognized UM music faculty and guest artists. Evening activities include swimming, field activities, cook-outs, movie nights, a mixer, and recitals. Individual private instruction is also available in guitar, voice, piano, and for all traditional band and orchestral instruments.

Participants should be between the ages of 11-18, be able to independently read music, and have completed at least one year of study in a school band, orchestra, choir, guitar class, piano class, or have taken private lessons outside of school. Experience in music technology is not required for the music technology program, only the ability to read music.


Online registration for the 2022 Young Musicians’ Camp is now closed. To determine if space is available, please phone Associate Camp Director Julie McEntee at 205-665-6670.
